What to Expect During Treatment
Because JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery
or downtime. So you can make an appointment to stop by the office
for treatment on the way home from work or the gym, or even while
the kids are at soccer practiceand get right back to your
life. Here's what to expect when you visit for treatment.
Before you go: Avoid any medications that can prolong
bleeding, such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories
(NSAIDs), for at least a week prior to treatment in order to reduce
the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site. (Tylenol
When you arrive: If this is your first visit, Dr.
Hoenig will ask about your medical history, including any allergies
you may have or medications you may take, and will tell you more
about wrinkle treatment with JUVÉDERM®
Injectable Gel . An allergy test is not required.
Determining your treatment needs: Dr. Hoenig will
examine the soft tissue of your face to assess the depth of wrinkles
and folds to determine your treatment. JUVÉDERM®
Injectable Gel is available in two formulationsJuvéderm
Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles
and folds, and Juvéderm Ultra Plus, a robust formulation
for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.
Before the procedure: Dr. Hoenig will use topical
and/or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area first.
The procedure: Dr. Hoenig will ease the JUVÉDERM®
Injectable Gel under your skin to augment, or fill, wrinkles
and folds. Following the injection, he may gently massage the treated
areas. The procedure is quick and easy. The injection itself usually
takes only about 15 minutes.
After the procedure: With JUVÉDERM®
Injectable Gel , there is minimal recovery or downtime.
For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should
avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption
of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize the risks of temporary
redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. After
the treatment, some temporary injection-related reactions may occur,
including redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps. Studies
have shown that these are usually mild to moderate in nature and
clear up on their own in 7 days or less. If you experience swelling
at the injection site, you can apply an ice pack for a brief period.
Seeing results: You should see an immediate
improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need one treatment
to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing. And one treatment could smooth
your lines and wrinkles for up to 1 year! However, results may vary
and correction is temporary. Supplemental touch up treatments
may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
